1 Music: what are you listening to? on Tue Aug 01, 2017 10:06 pm

A little break from all the action! Recently during work (animation) I'm listening to this playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/spotify/playlist/37i9dQZF1DX3PIPIT6lEg5
It's relaxing hums and .. trance? Not sure of the genre. Really lets me focus though, I like it. A nice break from all the rock, metal and pop I listen to while gaming. 

I know I know, Spotify. But I got my adblocker setup in such a way I don't hear any ads which is fine by me. Like the interface too. 

So what are you guys listening to these days? Anything special?

I love some Korean bands/artists. I'm studying the language at the moment but I've loved the music for like 10 years+ now. Not the girly pop (no offense, but many people ask if that's what I mean) stuff though.

Oooh Korean. Can you give an example? Never really listened to it. I do eat a lot of Korean when I'm in Taiwan, great food. Amazing.

Why are you studying the language?

I recently been listening to god hand ost, namely genes rock-a-bye/broncobuster, floating fort, top of the humans.

Gene themes r so chill I think it captures that no worry attitude of gene well,like unleash the god hand no worries babe I'll be cool(god hand end theme blew me away, what a perfect way to end such a game, U EARNED THOSE CREDITS GOOD FUCKEN JOB WE LOVE IT U LOVE IT VIDEOGAMES, for how little it gives a fuck about some super long boring credits text crawl like Ubisoft loves)

Typically game ost r what I jam to, as games ost have that variety n personality I dig, I consume games more than any other medium.

the way games use music can be very creative and immersive, nier(devola can be heard singing In niers village if u get close to her) and automata have great use of music.
platinum games also have dynamic music that works to enforce story and gameplay(mgr RULES OF NATURE, bayo during demon summons). Music power ups with those 2 examples.

I have more attachment to music with games for that intimacy with games and their cast, stories n gameplay.



I don't really focus on genre with music i listen to whatever, like games theirs so many genres that intersect it's hard to discern what's what and to what extent, so it is what it is.

I listen to campfire sounds to help me sleep.

I listen to a lot of game/movie/show OSTs too. Some are really amazing and I even have some official soundtrack CDs at home. Metroid Prime, Metroid Fusion, Super Mario 3d World, Legend of Zelda, Soul Calibur II and Tales of Symphonia soundtracks are all in my house; pretty sweet booklets too.
During gaming I have my own playlist if I really want to go ham. If I'm really stuck I generally put on "You're the best Around" or "Devil may Sly" to see me through ^^

And it's funny you mention campfire sounds. A friend of mine listens to rainsounds. I sometimes did too when I was on holiday with my parents and they ... snored a lot haha.

PS: I never understood why that video, of all videos, did not feature Metal Gear Rising.

Roy I started off with Cherry Filter and Jaurim, then Lee Sun Hee (hate spelling it like that because it's not correct, but somehow this became common). Amazing singers. There's more but as an example these will do. Or did you also want some example songs?

Why? Nothing important. It's just a side project really. Always wanted to learn another language so I just went with what interest me the most which is quality singing talent. I haven't like any music as much as the Korean stuff overall.

My gf wants me to learn Tagalog but I'm not feeling it lol.

Also love soundtracks from games. Some of my top ones are Guilty Gear X2 Reload, Shadow of the Colossus, OZ, Okami, and Soul Calibur 2 as well.

This song isn't a Cherry Filter original, they just covered it for this music show but is a fantastic example of this Youjeen's voice and live perfection.



Jaurim


Lee Sun Hee

Why is that? Does he have to live there? Fortunately my gf doesn't really mind.

I also want to post some mean tunes from OZ, that action game I told you about. Sometimes I load up the game and replay these stages just to smash things to these tracks.

The Korean music sounds pretty nice, better than I expected actually. Good stuff Bird!

Also Roy, if you interested in Chinese stuff check out Zhang Liangying. I don't like any of her pop music crap, but when she sings stuff like ballads just...wow. One of a kind. Check out Amei too (she's Taiwanese). Your gf will definitely know of these. Go forth, and dazzle her with your Chinese music industry knowledge lol!

Couldnt be bothered posting insert individual tracks and it would just extend the post way down.

TRANSFORMAAAAAAAS *cue sick hair metal vocals*. The movie theme song is called lion, chills down my spine every time. Bit sad that the Touch by Stan Bush wasn't used in devastation, a remix or something the like would have been stellar.

Stepping outside of video games, I've actually been listening to a large mixup of...progressive rock bands? I'm not sure the genre, they aren't Dream Theatre level, but they have the style. I often listen to Coheed and Cambria, listening to their albums in the order of the plot at least once a month, and then I have a radio thing on Google Play Music that plays them, Saosin, Thrice, The Used, Taking Back Sunday, and a few others. Those are what I listen to when I want to engage with the music and sing along.

When I am listening to music to help me pass time, my genre switches to instrumental djent rock, which consists of Intervals, Polyphia, Animals as Leaders, Monuments, Scale the Summit, and a few others. Just high energy instrumentals with incredible guitars. This song in particular has been locked in my head next to the breath of fire 1 shop music for a few weeks now.

Been looking for this track for awhile, it's used in Samurai Champloo(anime) but not listed on the official OST as it's not an original track.

Really loving some of the DBFZ tracks. It's great that you can choose any track you want after selecting the stage. These are my favorites.

I really love it when a game (or anything for that matter) uses music to build up epic moments. 

Yakuza 4 has a main song that keeps on returning, and it is just amazing in the finale. 

Here it is during the instalation screen:


Here it is during the opening cinematic:


Here it is during the first of the final four bosses:


During the second of the four final bosses:


During the third:


And the final boss:



Also they use it really well with the boss openings:



God I am weak to this type of stuff...
